Leveret at the Met Main Stage from Michal Shapiro on Vimeo.

This would please Purcell! These English folk dances are performed wonderfully by this trio of aces. It took me several passes to figure out which of the squeezeboxes was playing what, because they are so close in timbre, and it all meshes together so well.
The performance was part of the Homegrown Festival, a joint production of the The Met and the English Folk Expo.

Welcome!

Here’s where you’ll find my weekly original world music video blogs that appear on Huffington Post, as well as an archive starting in April of 2009.

This is also the place where you will find video that is exclusive to my site. I’ve traveled to places like Uzbekistan, Morocco, and Taiwan and no matter where I go I have found amazingly talented and creative people working in every genre from the deepest traditions to the cutting edge.

It’s been incredibly rewarding to interview them and to capture some of what they do on video. Enjoy what you see and hear, and let me know what you think. I welcome your feedback.
